Welcome to season 2…, Mindful Quotes, Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. A series of my own fresh and original inspirational quotes…. Of course, we can all benefit from being inspired…, and many of us have our favorite quote. 

Some of you may be searching for yours…. That one quote that inspires you to be a better, healthier, and happier You…. Of course, Success as well…, embodies these attributes. 

There is a quote here for almost everyone. Listen for yours.

Hello. I am William Garcia, Philosopher, author of the book titled, Now O’ Clock. Being Mindful, it Always is, and…, your host.

Being a Mindfulness practitioner…, and before I open with the quote of this day, I invite you to join me in a mindfulness affirmation… Ready…. First…, take a deep breath with me…. That felt good, right? Now…, repeat after me…, It is Now O’ Clock…. I am… I am here … I am here now… I am open to be inspired.  

Now…, let’s take another deep breath.

Of course…, you can affirm your mindfulness and do the breathing exercise on your own or with someone else, and I strongly recommend you do. Make it at least a twice daily routine. But if you also want to do it with me…, let’s do it.

 I believe this mindfulness affirmation will help tune your sense of presence…, your mindful sense of presence in the only occasion that matters in your life…Now.

It is Now O’ Clock…, time for the quote of this day.

When bad things happen to us, they get our full and present attention, and that is to be expected. We want the bad thing to go away, like… right now, this instant.

 But in some cases, it is not so simple, right? Sometimes we must prepare to endure the long haul. But, that does not mean however, that we must carry the weight for the long haul. As difficult as it may be, and at some point, letting go is the best way to go. 

Today’s quote is titled: PRESERVE YOUR MINDFUL SELF

Staying in the present negative tense for too long, rots the spirit. Preserve your mindful self. Expect the best. Think positive, unquote.

I can see where someone can feel like they are losing their mind when being overwhelmed by an unfortunate situation, and I have said it before, it is just being human, thinking and feeling beings.

But most of the time there is a balance to be struck, a balance between Thought and Emotion. 

Now…, I will be the first to admit there are times and situations, where this is easier said than done…, much easier said than done. It is why someone would say, yeah right. You try it. You live it, and they would be justified.

Still, I am here to tell you that the search for that balance is a worthwhile effort. Just the decision, the commitment to search, could be the beginning of a tip in the balance between holding on and letting go. It is a positive and simultaneous step away from and toward expecting something good to happen. Something new, something fresh, a spirit renewed. 

Preserve your mindful Self. Search for that balance, your own balance, at your own pace.

Tune in next time for the quote of the day…. It may be that one quote you are searching for…. That quote that ignites your passion and gears you up for achievement…, or…, it may be the quote that…, as you journey through life…, illuminates your path…, brings you peace…, love…, and happiness. Share what you find here with someone else. It may be a quote…, that for them…, may set them…, or keep them on a path to a better life.
